Highly technical, very difficult trail from Jochberg peak down the north ridge. Very steep and narrow in parts with difficult off camber sections with hanging roots. Many extremely tight and steep switchbacks with unpleasant roots and rocks in them. In some exposed parts, a fall would have ugly consequences. Trial skills would be useful in some spots. The trail begins on rock but is mostly on grassy and forest terrain. The easier parts are at the beginning and end. Recommend against trying when the trail is even slightly wet.

       I love hard trails, but this one....let me say it with the words of my Kiwi friends: 80 % rideable, 20 % of the time

       You raise a good point. When I rode it, I managed about 80% of it and it was still kind of wet, so I thought probably someone a little better than me could manage the whole thing when it is completely dry. I'm always a little unsure how to handle trails like this. I could leave them off the platform altogether, but then someday someone will try it without knowing what to expect. By putting it out there, people can at least see what it is, and then decide not to bother with it.

      For now, I will change trails like this to a dotted line (primarily for hiking). Maybe that is a better way to indicate the difficulty and possibly the trial and pro riders out there will still want to try it. Open for any suggestions how to present something like this in a useful manner.

       Cheers, I think leaving it like this is ok, my comment is really made from my very personal perspective and riding abilities. You could ride it and others will be able to ride 100%. It is a double black diamond, everyone should be cautious (like me) entering those. I ride a lot of Double Blacks, but it is just important to know what gives it a double black status: Trials like narrow sketchy stuff, or huge jumps or huge drops, steep chutes or combinations of the above...


      I would just propose to add a better description: It is a steep hiking track, with narrow switchbacks, and probably riders with trials background will enjoy it, others not so much. You can't use momentum for sketchy features.

      So please let it as a MTB track so others are still finding it, but with a more detailed description and maybe some photos so they will know what to expect.

       That's useful feedback for posting these kind of sick, technical trails. I updated the description to make it sound a little more scary, but think it was already 80% there. ;-)

       Yeah reading it again, you are right. Great experience nevertheless, just not my cup of riding tea;-)
